    Is there any way to change the font/fontcolor/background/border of the quest description floater when mouse-over a quest? I've searched through the settings and can't find anything that allows changing this. Grey on grey is rather hard to read, so if there would be config settings for this, that would be awesome. To show what i mean, i will include a screenshot of what i mean.

    I noticed an error! Change of an area ... Closing of the quests in the area and open the quests from the current area. This function does not work!

    Otherwise, the addon is great!

    Please next update :)

    Strictly speaking I don't really have time to add major features at the moment (At least until start December)

    Though things like the pop-up at the top for picking up quest starting items is rather nice though..

    By pop up on-top of the tracker for remote quests do you mean in the same manner quest starting items do in questking?

    And because of the way (from memory) the frames are built for each quest I don't believe that there is an easy way to blink text without refreshing the entire minion each time.

    Though to be honest I am more concerned about how he has scenarios and challenge modes, are they built like that into the blizzard tracker in mists? (No beta access)

    Also long time no see Akgis ^_^

    Are you still adding features to this addon?

    If so have 2 sugestions?

    Those quests that came up when you zone or finish another quest aka "remote quests" maybe make a popup to show on top of the tracker.

    Other sugestion would be to blink the line a you do a step of a quest.

    This are features of another tracker called questking, probleam is that this one has a few shorcommings like no LDB and its not dragable.

    Hello peoples,

    I wanted to say sorry for not updating sooner, life has sadly not been wanting to give me the free time. Should hopefully be able to get back to maintaining this now, though new features are still not likely anytime soon.

    Big thank-you to mkong409 for tracking down the issues that arose in 5.0.4 and providing fixes ^_^ Feel free to post issues you have on here or on curse, tickets here are generally the best way to do it through.

    FYI, I have this updated and working on my system with 5.04. I'm not sure I've gotten everything, but it's at least operational for now. Here is a list of changes:

    First, I updated all ACE3 libs to their 5.04 counterparts, and then updated Core.lua as follows:

    Line 3222: GetMaxDailyQuests() has been deprecated, updated line to read the following:

    strText = strText .. strQuestMinionTitleColour .. "(" .. GetDailyQuestsCompleted() .. ")|r"
    

    Line 4035: GetNumPartyMembers() has been renamed to GetNumGroupMembers():

    local intPartyMembers = GetNumGroupMembers();
    

    Line 4982: ACHIEVEMENT_CRITERIA_PROGRESS_BAR has also been deprecated, I've found this code in other updated addons that has worked around this:

    if ( bit.band(flags, EVALUATION_TREE_FLAG_PROGRESS_BAR) == EVALUATION_TREE_FLAG_PROGRESS_BAR ) then
    

    I have it packaged up, but not sure where I can post it, but if you want to apply the updates manually, have at it....

    Yeah putting the colour at the bottom for the thing at the top of the minion.. not my brightest moment >.<

    I have a fair idea on how to re-implement the tracking and a prototype of the scrolling, but as much as I would love to get them working I just don't have the time :(
    Bring on Uni break already ^_^

    @Sorha2: Go

    That's a shame about the tracking, it's such a pita to do every single time.

    In regards to your 2) I already tried that, it doesn't change the color. I just logged out of the game for the night, I will try again tomorrow morning.

    EDIT:

    My fault, I overlooked it, it was there at the bottom for the minion title text. tyvm.

    As far as 4) goes. If you wanted to take a look at QuestGuru on how he did the "remember what was tracked" and "tracker scrolling" you could always do so. In fact, Mr. O'Brian had to quit the game for personal reasons so he is giving away the addon to any one who wishes to take it over.

    1)
    Have this mostly done, just had a very heavy RL workload lately (Have barely had time to get on wow more then 20mins a week)

    2)
    Try the Settings -> Quest Minion -> Colours -> Minion title text
    Is that the section you meant?
    Yeah I admit the colours I picked for the add-on are fairly random.. joys of being colourblind :D

    3)
    Sadly I don't see myself as being able to get this done in any realistic time frame due to the above time issues :(

    4)
    Originally SQL maintained its own set of quests which were tracked/untracked.
    However people requested it be merged with blizzards ones, which did make the addon alot simpler.
    The trouble is now that for the time being blizzard has a bug with their quest tracking/some other interface settings which loses them each logout :(

    Re-implementing the old system would just be to much work for me at the moment, if blizzard decide not to patch this issue then I may reconsider.
